"Blue Skies Bring Tears" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Unleash the Armageddon
So all the children go to heaven
I sit by quiet still
With their pictures on my eyes
You'll draw the guns you're given
Write down the words as written
And never disturb the presence
Of resurrection crutch

And it's about time
It's about drawing near
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Descend the darkened stairways
Make hate with plastic playmates
And fire out remaining traces
Of your self-esteem
Mainline the deepest secrets
Lick clean the dirty fingers
I am a stranger to you
As you are to yourself

And it's about time
It's about fear
Blue skies bring tears
Don't you want me
As I awake the city sigh
We'll watch the seasons die
Blue skies bring tears

Take me inside your body
Cover me with your soul
To the darkest recess
Is where I wish to go
You are the greatest flower
That I have ever devoured
I ask for nothing given
For nothing in return

Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears
Blue skies bring tears

    General CommentI think the main idea of this song's pretty easy to figure out...
    Blue skies bring tears = clarity brings sadness. When you figure out what's happening, you feel terrible.

    General CommentI think this song is about a bombing on a city. The last verse is someone talking to someone else, asking them to hold them before they die. The rest are probably connected to this idea too...but I might be wrong.

    General CommentAll I know is that the line: "blue skies bring tears" means that all he wants is clarity. Being part of MACHINA (their last album), Corgan was unsure of the band's way. He wondered how things would turn out. Clarity.

    General Commentvertigo-good point. In a way, the bombs could be tears. Tears clean out any traces of gunk in the eye, and bombs, it has been said, clean out any traces of unwanted folks or buildings in an area (social and political gunk?) Anyway, another great song from the very underrated Machina

    General CommentI think some of this song is about realzing something and coming to terms with something that is very hard to come to terms with. "Blue skies bring tears" could mean that once everything is clear, and you realize the truth, it can be hard sometimes.

    General CommentI think it's about hurt, and (linking this to MACHINA) is the hurt that we have subjected to ourselves. It's like suggesting that clear will bring tears of sorrow, cause it will reveal the damage we have done.
    unleash the armageddon/so all the children go to heaven
    This line... If everyone died now, only th innocent children COULD go heaven, because we are all sinners in what we are doing to the world and hummanity's moral structure.

    It could also say that love with another person is the only freedom from this chaos we jhave brought upon ourselves.
    take me inside your body
    cover me with your soul
    to the darkest recess
    is where i wish to go
    you are the sweetest flower
    that i have ever devoured
    i ask for nothing given
    for nothing in return

    And it isn't bleak: It makes me happy in that weird Pumpkin-y way
